The Social Entrepreneur Richard Barth

From an early age it bothered Richard Barth that in the US children from low-income families had little chance of getting a good education - much less a college degree. Nine years ago he became CEO of the KIPP Foundation, which runs charter schools for underprivileged young people. There are now more than 160 KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) schools attended by close to 60 thousand students.
